2. You’ve probably heard rumors about the Landers being haunted.
There are quite a few ghost stories circulating around Landers, and it's said that the theater is haunted by not one but three ghosts. There’s the ghost of a Shakespearean actor that supposedly walks back and forth along the windows of the 4th floor. Then, there’s the greenish orb that has been spotted floating around the second balcony. As if that wasn’t creepy enough, people have reported hearing the sounds of babies crying… and what sounds like mothers gently quieting the children. Yikes! Not everyone has seen each of these ghosts, but Chuck Rogers, scenic designer and technical director, at SLT experienced his first ghost sighting in the building in 1999. “That sighting still unnerves me when I’m at the theater alone,” he says.
3. Landers has welcomed a fair share of celebrity guests over the years.
One of its most memorable visitors was Kathleen Turner. This two-time Golden Globe winner actually performed on stage at Landers. So, who else has made a special appearance at the theater? Let’s see… There was Lucas Grabeel (famous for his role in the High School Musical series), Apollo Robbins aka The Gentleman Thief, and actress Tess Harper who you’ll probably recognize from her roles in No Country For Old Men and Breaking Bad.
